Exploring Light and Shadow


Exploring light and shadow is magical to children. We started off looking at light and shadows on the light box. Exploring leaves and nature on the light box. The children were interested in adding shadows to the light. We developed this idea further by introducing the OHP to the children. The children explored making shadows with objects and their bodies and began to tell stories with the objects on the OHP. We recorded the stories and images, making them into a book to read back to the children and share with parents. The children developed their confidence and operating skills while they told and drew images for their stories.
